Almost all forms of glomerular diseases have been reported in diabetics. In a recent series, 12% of those with type I and 27% of those with type II diabetes were found to have non diabetic renal disease. We studied 80 adult diabetic Iraqi patients who were diagnosed with glo­merular disease on native kidney biopsies from January 2000 to April 2008. Membranoproliferative GN was seen in 32 patients (40%), Focal and Segmental glomerulosclerosis in 16 patients (20%), Membranous nephropathy in 20 patients (25%), Minimal change disease in 8 patients (10%), Renal amyloidosis in 4 patients (5%). In conclusion Membranoproliferative GN was the most common histological diagnosis in our diabetic patients undergoing renal biopsy.
